Not Guilty –
May 15, 2020 – Recovery Court, a 12 month program, provides an alternative to incarceration for eligible non-violent offenders, both adults and juveniles, who are deemed substance dependent.
In order to keep tabs on the participants while courts have been closed during COVID-19 , Judge Cook and other members of the team started having Recovery Court outdoors last month.
“This is our 4th Recovery Court drive through for adults and juveniles and it has worked out fabulously. We started the drive through so we could stay in touch with our recovery court participants. Its important for them that we stay in touch and that they stay in touch with us. Actually I think most of them would prefer a drive through rather than coming into court.
